Nero's Clearwing or Fiddler's Ticlear
Godyris nero

Observation date: October 03, 2021
Date notes: Overcast day.
Submitted by: Paul Prappas
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Found in dense jungle, high elevation. Occasionally landing on leaves. Andromica Clearwing is similar, but the dark FW cell bar narrows at the end on Andromica whereas it flares out on Nero, and the FW on Nero is rounder. Thick HW border with no spotting. To my knowledge, no other Clearwing matches up as well.
